fraps - help wanted
« on: October 29, 2008, 04:22:48 PM »
Honestly I have spent ages looking at my notecards & in the forum and I bet the answers are there somewhere... :-\ or maybe it's difficult ??? (without shelling out dosh that is)

I have a couple of fraps each 30 seconds long taking up megabytes on my hard disk.  I would like to present a powerpoint and show either the whole of the fraps or extracts from them.  I have to do something first definitely to edit the files or compress them in some way as I can't do the very first step of moving them from the hard disk they are on presently to my own laptop.
Any advice would be very gratefully received.

movie maker can be good but will take a while and often makes the quailty rubbish (on my comp at least). Try using zamzar (http://www.zamzar.com/) to convert the files its the most reliable one i've heard about.

 :o I really cannot believe the things I forget.... thank you so much for the reminder of Movie Maker and the new idea which I will check out.  However in the meantime I spent £2 on some sea shanties and made a little video (very very little in every sense) about Rowan's earliest attempts to sail (before Topper & co helped).  I then got very much into all the schome machinimas on blip and Youtube there is such good stuff.... :D  Thank you again

Where can we view your sailing video?
